8 January 2013



Planning to pop the question this holiday season but aren’t sure where you want to make this magical moment happen? At Flight Centre we have got the inside scoop on the hottest most romantic places to propose on every continent.  So, if you've wrapped up something extra special to give her this year, here is a little inspiration to help you choose where to make her dreams come true.


North America


Whistler Village, British Columbia  Canada

This stunning winter wonderland will feel like a fairy-tale come true.  From the minute you arrive in Whistler Village, you will be captivated by the beauty of snowy trees and alpine style buildings decorated with twinkling white lights.  Imagine strolling through the village as snowflakes gently fall around you or heading up the hill for some skiing.  Cozy up with hot apple cider around a wood burning fireplace at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, or go for an intimate winter walk around Lost Lake.  She will remember every minute of your proposal in this picture perfect place.

Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence, Italy.

While Paris and Venice may outrank Florence by popularity, unlike at San Marco Square or the Eiffel Tower you won’t have to worry about somebody else popping the question right beside you and potentially with a better ring!  Surrounded by rolling hills and with panoramic views of Florence from the Arno River to Ponte Vecchio Bridge, Piazzale Michelangelo is easily one of the most breath taking places on earth.  Wait until sunset when the city is dusted with an orange glow before you get down on one knee.  She will feel as though she’s on top of the world when she says ‘yes’.




Phi Phi Islands, Phuket, Thailand

These tranquil islands off the east coast of Thailand in the Malacca Strait are the perfect spot for a beach proposal.  From white sand, to sparkling turquoise waters and amazing snorkelling, these islands are a postcard perfect place to pop the question.  Take an early boat from Phuket to avoid sharing your moment with too many other people this way you can also catch the sunrise on your way to the island.  Once there, take her on a longtail boat at Ko Phi Phi Leh or Maya Beach before you get down on one knee.




Molle Islands National Park, South Molle Island, Australia.

Whisk her away from the bustle of the city to the stunning beauty of Queensland’s Whitsundays.  Here she will love getting back to nature amongst pockets of rainforest and white sand.  Offering breath taking views of coastline alongside beautiful wildlife like the Rainbow Lorikeet there is no shortage of perfect places to ask her to marry you.  At low tide you can even walk between two of the islands!




The Nile River, Egypt

Take your incredible fiancé-to be on an adventure as amazing as she is.  A Nile River cruise is both fun and romance all in one.  Couple this with an unbeatable setting, and your proposal will be nothing short of perfect.  By day, explore ancient monuments; by night watch the shoreline lazily drift by while you enjoy amazing wines and mouth-watering four course meals.  Be choosy about which vessel you book with if you want her to have the best of the best.  The Oberoi Philae Nile Cruiser has private balconies and offers 4 and 6 night packages.
